Many teachers using "Challenge Math for the Elementary and Middle School Student" have requested a similar book for younger students. This book teaches thinking and math problem solving skills using the fun characters that appear in the other Zaccaro math books. Problems at four levels of difficulty are included that test a student's application of each concept as it is learned. The book is designed for advanced math students in grades 1-4, however it also works well for older students with grade level math skills. Teachers may reproduce pages for use with their students.

My kid loved solving challenging problems that don't come easily to her. She has been using Beestar online to solve their interesting math problems. We learned this book from Beestar. Since at home, we provided acceleration but always were at a loss for providing depth. This books seems to be solving that hunger for depth. The problems involve critical thinking. You will be surprised kids will work on is generally expected for young kids. Like the Beestar programs, every problem in this book requires some out of the box thinking. If the kid has a good grasping power and doesn't like repetition, this book is ideal. I would highly recommend this for any kid who loves working on challenge problems.
A great add on for any math program. These word problems add challenge for students with problems getting more difficult as the student progrsses.
